KILGOUR 2019 Pinot Noir
Hand harvested fruit was carefully destemmed into small open fermenters. A natural ferment started after two days on skin. The open fermented was hand plunged for a week until the wine was dry. It was then gently pressed and sent to the underground cellar. Maturation was in new and used French oak puncheons for 9 months prior to racking and bottling in late December 2018.
Dark red with bright purple hues and brilliant clarity. This maritime site is reflected in the glass with the Pinot showing dark cherry, complexed by game meats, briary spice and hints of coffee liqueur. Dark fruits explode onto the palate, giving instant appeal. The fruits are wrapped with grown cherry pith tannins and lovely richness and warmth. The palate flows on leaving you with spice and cherry flavours long after the wine has left the mouth. A great example of a cool climate, maritime Pinot Noir.
Drink now through 2028. Enjoy with foods such as roast duck Maryland’s, apricot chicken or a piece of hard cheddar.
